Fortbethel, The Fort in Morrison is very ,very expensive. For excellent food I agree,Pete’s Kitchen and all the other Greek restaurants (by the same owner) are great and cheap.
Patsis has good Italian food. Cafe Berlin is one of my favorite restaurants,but a little bit more money.
Thanks for the tips. I love Mexican food, diners and chicken, while my 13-year son is into steak, steak sandwiches, real burgers and subs.
Actually, if you want a good burger, go to My Brother s Bar at 2376 15th St.
A much nicer atmosphere, with Bach and Handle on the stereo Chess games and intellectual conversation. The Cherry Cricket is tired, unless you re shopping at the mall and Cherry Creek North. It s just a bar with food that tries to do too many things.
Try the jalapeno cheeseburger at MBB. It s infamous, and rightly so. Wrapped in wax paper with fries that will please you with their greasiness.
St Louis Browns Fan, here is a repeat of a previous post which you may find useful for your Denver trip. Enjoy!
I can’t verify the claim about it being the original home of the CB, but if you want a truly GREAT cheeseburger you’ve got to visit the Cherry Cricket in Cherry Creek. It’s just a bar, but it is known all over the area and is visited by all kinds of people from U of Denver students, downtown office workers, suburbanites, construction workers, you name it. More ways to build your own burger than you can possibly imagine, plus about 80 different beers on their beer menu (nineteen on draft). If you crave a good burger in Denver this is the place!

Bonita Springs, FL
Racine’s and Brewery Bar are good, and I’ll second their recommendations.
I’ll offer my standards for visitors, although you don’t say where you’ll be staying.
Pete’s Kitchen- Corner of Colfax and Race, a mile from downtown. A real Greek diner experience. And, now that they’ve banned smoking in restaraunts, the air is actually tolerable. Open 24/7. Try the hot hamburger or breakfast burrrito.
Duffy’s- Downtown on Court Street, between 16th and 17th. Diner type food, but it’s not a diner. Very casual with daily specials and old standbys. Not the greatest food in the world, but it’s decent, filling and cheap.
There are so many Mexican restaraunts here I could recommend about a hundred. La Pasadita is in my nieghborhood, owned by a brother and sister from Mexico. Good food, and reasonably priced. Take Clarkson Street until it ends at 20th and park in the shopping center lot.
There’s lots more. Give me an idea as to which part of town you’ll be in and I may be able to offer idea’s about something close.
Tom’s Home Cooking
New York Deli News
Milagro Taco Bar
There’s lots more but I tried to find fairly cheap.
Saucy Noodle on University in the Bonnie Brae area — great red sauce.
Gotta try Bonnie Brae ice cream down the street from the Saucy Noodle. It’s so hot and it tastes so good.
Bourbon Street Pizzeria — with live jazz and fabu pizza.
Go a bit further up north to Fort Collins, and get a Fat Tire at the Brewery– New Belgium. Lots of other great beers too.
I always suggest Brewery Bar II on Kalamath for Mexican.
1) Canyon Cafe in Broomsfield
2) The Fort in Morrison
3) Tosh’s Hacienda in Denver
4) John’s Resturant in Boulder
5) Laudisio in Boulder Don’t miss the, ‘creme brulee’ here
I did LOTS of research on Denver before I went a year ago. After experiencing about 20 places the 5 above are the best. Have a safe trip. 🙂
If you like green chili, hit Jims Burger Haven.
They have crappy little cheap burgers—BUT!!!! killer green chili.
I used to go to the one in Thornton.. 98th, just east of I-25..
Other than that, my friends cooked for me, and I just did mainly Chains for the month that I lived in an extended stay hotel last August-sept.(2005)
But I did love that green chili!
Pxwings might have something to add here.
Venture north to Boulder and have a Fat Tire…….(beer, that is)
I’m making my first trip to the city since 1998. What’s good and cheap in the mile high city these days?
